A Touching Story

A young man was getting
ready to graduate college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports
car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he
told him that was all he wanted. As Graduation Day approached, the young man
awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of
his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told
him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved
him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat
disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound
Bible. Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said, „With all your
money you give me a Bible?” and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy
book. Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He
had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very
old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that
graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram
telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to
his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things. When he
arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He
began to search his father’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just
as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn
the pages. As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped
behind the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer’s name, the same dealer who had
the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and
the words…PAID IN FULL. How many times do we miss God’s blessings because
they are not packaged as we expected? Please share this 🙂
